Ivey Meeks is an American social media star, model, singer, songwriter, and actress, best known for her cover of Taylor Swift‘s song Blank Space, published in December 2014 in collaboration with a fellow social media star and singer, MattyBRaps. Even though she had aspirations in the media industry already, having worked as a model, actress, and appeared in TV commercials, this launched her YouTube career. Ivey joined the regular cast of creators on the ‘Funniflix’ YouTube channel, which has amassed more than 1.5 million subscribers and began making weekly appearances. She was best known as her angrier, more “out-there” character, Crazy Ivey, and appeared in vlogs, comedy skits, and reactions to other people’s videos from the channel.
In 2019, she also became a prominent singer and released solo and duet songs such as Like A Movie, Over It, Fake Friends, Feelings, BRAT in collaboration with Austin, and Sick Day in collaboration with Noella. Between 2014 and 2019, she had also collaborated with MattyBRaps on a number of songs, parodies, vlogs, and discussion videos, primarily because of the high interest of the fanbase to see them together after their initial success. Ivey also often collaborated with her ‘Funniflix’ co-stars, Haschak Sisters (Madison Haschak, Gracie Haschak, Sierra Haschak, and Olivia Haschak), Sarah Grace, Justin Bradford, and Liv Shumbres. Ivey has also amassed a large fanbase online with more than 100k followers on Instagram.

Boyfriend / Spouse
Ivey Meeks has dated –
- MattyBRaps (2014) – Not too long after their 1st collaboration for the cover of Blank Space, their fanbase “shipped” them together. At 1st, both of them denied the rumors and states they’re great friends that loved collaborating. In 2016 and 2017, they published videos such as The Popcorn Challenge! (MattyBRaps vs Ivey), My Date with Ivey, My BREAK UP Phone Call with Ivey!, The Break Up! (MattyBRaps & Ivey), and others, where both of them showed a healthy dose of humor regarding the rumors. In each of the videos, one of them addresses the other as his girlfriend/boyfriend, and the other person gets weirded out and says “We’re not dating!”. This became a recurring theme but was also a clarification that these were comedy skits made in good fun to satisfy their fanbase’s wishful thinking.

Ivey Meeks Facts
- She was always into acting and attended drama classes in school.
- Ivey’s favorite birthday memory was when she was 8 years old, which later turned into her favorite number. When her parents told her they were not going anywhere for spring break, which was in April for her school, it left her disappointed. But then, her family had tickets to see a few Broadway shows in New York City, New York, United States, which was her 1st time in a “big city” and took her breath away.
- She had her start on YouTube in the 7th grade, when she went on an audition to appear in one of MattyBRaps’s videos. It was when they heard her sing that the idea for the music cover came about.
- Ivey had her wisdom teeth removed in early July 2019, and filmed a very strong reaction to the anesthesia, which included wailing and crying intensively.
- She considers Taylor Swift as her role model because she’s “extremely talented and super creative”.
- She cannot stand people who talk or laugh loudly.
- According to her, the most difficult thing about her work as a YouTuber is to find the right life-work balance. In August 2019, she went to a public high school, had multiple singing engagements, and was an active member of the ‘Funniflix’ YouTube channel collective.
- As of August 2019, Ivey would love to collaborate with Summer McKeen, who is a fashion, lifestyle, and beauty YouTuber.
- If she could have a fictional thing in real life, she would like Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. Ivey would also love to have the ability to read people’s minds.
- She’s not the type of person who could sit idle at home and do nothing. She has to play a sport, do her homework, or go out with friends and family.
